-day slave master for all of us. abolish it. we also have some altering that we need to do. we have some altering to do. we have got collectively to alter this liberal express going on in washington, d.c. we have to alter this liberal express. let's make sure we are on the same page. i am an old mathematics major. the first thing you do as a math major is to make sure you understand the assumptions and definitions. that is where you start. let me define "conservative." let me define "liberal," so you'll know where i'm coming from. part of the problem many of us have in trying to discuss something with a little is they don't know whether they are liberal or conservative. i define conservative real simply as someone who believes in less government, less taxes, and more individual responsibility. and a liberal believes in more government, more taxes, and less individual responsibility. conservatives believe in the free-market, free enterprise, and freedom. liberals believe and government markets, government enterprises, and the governmengovernment. that is how you tell them apart. we have t

prepared to support. >> host: since you told us at the outset that this series on world war might be 12 to 13 novels all together, i guess there's not much time about this question but what about the revolutionary news on the topic? >> guest: we had talked about trying to do a novel about george washington. we just did a dvd called rediscovering god in america which includes a section on washington. and i'm very intrigued with the extraordinary job that mount vernon has done in blding a remarkable education center, which i encourage everyone who comes to washington to go see. i would be very tempted someday to write aovel aut washington personally. i think washington's life is so amazing. he is such a personal odyssey in the development of freedom and he's so little understood, but it would be very daunting because washington is maybe the most complex american. i'd be pretty intimidated right now to try to explain his mind and explain how he operated. >> host: we have about 5 minutes left in our first hour of three with author, writer newt gingrich and also former speaker of the house a
